Whether it’s upgrading to the latest version of your ERP or your computer’s operating system, we often hesitate to click the ‘update’ button, especially for first iterations.
Bill Gates aptly said: “People always fear change. People feared electricity when it was invented, didn’t they?” Whether that fear stems from a perceived risk or the time needed for implementation, this resistance to change can negatively impact an organization by causing confusion and inefficiencies that drain resources.
Embracing Digital Disruption
To ensure continued effectiveness, competitiveness, and relevance in the modern, dynamic and complex business world, it is imperative to keep pace with digital disruption by implementing iterative software updates or new releases.
Driven by the relentless innovation that characterizes the fourth industrial revolution, today’s new technologies are developed at an alarming rate. It is vital that businesses update their software to take full advantage of new features.
Every upgrade builds on the previous version, using it as a stepping stone to improve and deliver greater usability and more powerful functionality. Missing a step can reduce proficiency and efficiency.
For instance, the latest SYSPRO update delivers features that address the current challenges faced in manufacturing and distribution operations. It’s a cloud-capable solution that offers a fresh new look and feel, and compelling functionality, delivering business optimization benefits like IoT integration and predictive analytics.
Enhanced User Experience
A choice of the interface (UI) allows companies to selectively deploy either a Windows client or a web-based solution according to specific operational needs or user preferences. The rich, Windows-based UI is ideal for data capture intensive users, while the web-based UI is best suited for users who require device-agnostic mobile engagement from remote locations. This option also enhances UX by providing flexibility and meeting the demands of the consumerization of IT within the workplace.
These are features enabled through iterative updates that empower workers, rather than overwhelm them due to the complexity that generally characterizes intermittent, large-scale system upgrades. Understanding and embracing new updates will benefit organizations and greatly simplify the lives of their employees.
